Bought it and read it a couple of months ago. One of those "must have" books. It's just a shame it finishes too soon; some of his later exploits I'm sure would have been interesting.

Just finished reading it. What a man.


His career was a mix of supreme professionalism with being in the right place at the right time.


His career can really never be beaten.
